Following the difficult years of the second World War, Hobart prospered during a long boom during the 1950s and 1960s. It was a wonderous time for architects. Filled with ideas from travelling overseas and influenced by a new wave of architects who immigrated to Australia, they set about building a better world. Wander Hobart’s streets with architect Bronwen Jones and hear about the Modernist ethos and some of the buildings it inspired in Hobart’s city centre.
